A cast-iron urinal, an antique wall safe and a starring role in the Netflix hit “Stranger Things,” those are just some of the unusual features that come with this newly listed home in Rome, Georgia, on the market for $1.5 million.
Eagle-eyed fans of the sci-fi horror drama will spot the 140-year old property in the latest season of the show as home to the troubled Creel family and Vecna’s lair in the Upside Down, the world’s alternate dimension in the show.
“Locally known as the Claremont House, because of a bed-and-breakfast that operated there for many years, the home has been a source of pride for the local community,” said listing agent Jeb Arp of Toles, Temple & Wright, Inc., who is handling the sale with his colleagues Mimi Richards and Katie Gettis Edwards.
“Seeing the home transformed not once, but twice throughout the course of filming was exciting for our town. Not only will the next owners be buying a piece of history, but a piece of pop culture as well,” he added.
Throughout the home, you can “recognize much of what has been prominently featured in the show’s fourth season, including: the majestic formal dining room where telekinesis is no longer practiced during meals; an adjoining parlor, perfect for playing Dungeons and Dragons; and a living room ideal for hosting meetings of the Hellfire Club,” reads the listing, referring to kids’ game of choice on the show and their group dedicated to it.
While producers gave the home a dramatic and sinister makeover for the show, away from the silver screen the owners, who Mansion Global couldn’t identify, have restored the Victorian home to its period grandeur.
Original details abound throughout the 6,000-square-foot spread, including handcrafted built-in bookshelves, large and layered moldings, a custom buffet, and of course, the aforementioned antique wall safe and “the most beautiful—and quite possibly only—cast iron urinal you’ll ever see,” the listing said.
With its flexible layout the home can have five or six bedrooms that are joined by a renovated chef’s kitchen with new appliances, a walk-in pantry and a 15-foot marble island; a dining room has a wet bar and an ice maker; and an unfinished third floor with its own staircase that could be transformed into an additional bedroom suite.
Behind the main home sits a Gothic-style guest house with a sitting room, two or three bedrooms, a kitchen and a renovated bathroom.
“Light years away from the Upside Down, the home, with its splendor and grand modernization, awaits her next stewards,” the listing said. “An unparalleled provenance and pop culture pedigree translate to a one-of-a-kind opportunity that won’t last long.”
